    Oh, it's the car in the game. I thought it was just scanned, at least that's what the title led me to believe until I kept reading... It was weird when I realized "why would they be scanning it for Sport, with 7 in production?" and then it clicked...

    Anyway...pretty cool.

    Great article @Famine. Some vehicles have such a fascinating history eh. That Jaguar XJ13 comes to mind for one.

    Makes me wonder what other vehicles were scanned from private collections? Curious to know who the owner of that Ferrari 250 GTO is.

    Would love to see an online race with some of the car owners. Virtually racing their own cars. :D

    I don't care who owns it so long as it's a good car

    CN.3729GT is owned by Jon Shirley, ex Microsoft COO etc.

    MS used to be the licensee for Ferrari cars on gaming platforms so they probably let PD do a scan on one of their ex C suite person's car. You can guess its the same car in Forza but PD did a better more thorough job?

    I agree, overall, it's a special car. However, it's only 50k in game. Should be in the 100k bracket, due to rarity.

    I was wondering the same thing about the '01 Porsche 911 GT3.

    The interior of the car in-game has serial number of 000/400 so Teshima-san's Impreza might be car #000?

    There are three #000s, all pre-production prototypes. They cannot be registered for road use; one belongs to Subaru Japan (likely the car used for interior capture), and Colin McRae and Nicky Grist owned the other two originally.

    On a related note, the rally car was not called the 22B, that's a common misnomer.

    The Ferrari 330 P4 is owned by Lawrence Stroll.

    That 996 is the same one that was a hidden vehicle in GT4. Its Kaz's own private GT3 with that cage and all.

    Plus, the default color is the same color of the one he owns.

    It was in GT3 (no pun intended).

    That car is such a unicorn in the history of racing games,the EA/ Porsche exclusivity made car fans hunt other games outside EA that had the porsche brand and you can find one with a little bit of trickery in gt3.

    I'm not sure what the dots all over the car are for. :confused: Not seen them used in any scanning I have seen of a car in the past, and as the article says, are normally used for motion capture, not for something static.

    I thought maybe they could have used it to match a cars movement in the game to a real life cars similar movement, to see how accurate their simulation is, and that may be so, but the dots on the wheels are probably not matching anything whilst moving. ;)

    This may have been explained in the Instagram post in the article, but that was blank, and following the link took me to Instagram who asked me to log in. Not having or wanting an account stopped me there from seeing more. :rolleyes: :(
